Since 2006 I have been employed as a consulting software developer by the National Research Council Aircraft Data Technologies (ADT) division (previously known as the Flight Recorder Playback Centre (FRPC)). My job has been to develop the software that the engineers use to analyze aircraft flight recorder data. This job has required advanced knowledge on how aircraft work, how their flight recorders record data, and on programming for Windows in object-oriented C++. While describing how aircraft flight recorders record their data and how my software is specially designed to accommodate them is outside the scope of this document, some of the features that make the software tools I have developed unique are listed below.

Below are a couple of images taken from the user manual I created for the program which show the main data plot window and the audio data plot window.
